127 Hours.

Ever experience crying because of a movie trailer? Well, I have. I really cried when I watched 127 Hour's trailer. Very touching and very inspiring.

127 Hours is a 2010 biographical adventure film produced, co-written and directed by Danny Boyle. The film stars James Franco as real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston, who became trapped by a boulder in Robbers Roost, Utah, for more than five days in early 2003 before amputating his arm with a dull knife.

I watched this with my brothers and we were like very excited on everything that might happen. We all know that it is very possible that he would drink/eat anything because he's been trapped there for 5 days or so. The drinking of urine is quite acceptable. You know what's gross? The time when he's cutting his arm with that dull knife. He forgot his Swiss knife when he was about to leave his house. Crazy man. hahaha.

James Franco as Aron Ralston:

And the real Aron Ralston:

I am 'vomity' while watching this, who wouldn't? But I really am inspired by his unstopping attempts to get himself free from that boulder. The movie was still like an actual footage (e.g. Paranormal Activity) but it's very heart-racing because you can't think of what would happen next.

Plus, do you remember Fleur Delacour?

Yes, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire's Fleur Delacour and now known as Mrs. Bill Weasley. She played the role Rana, Aron's ex-girlfriend which happens to have been his wife after three years (the one Aron's been dreaming about when he was stucked).

This movie really inspired me no matter how gross those situations are. Anyway, who wouldn't do that if you're desperate enough?

The part that I really cried is when he's saying a message to his family, especially when he said to his mother: "I wish I had returned your calls..." Parents really are the first thing you would remember when you are in any form of danger. They are the ones who led us to understand survival and they will always be the one to teach us how to continually survive, no matter how old we are.

And no matter how much trauma Aron Ralston must have experienced, he continued to be climber even though he's only got one hand left, it's never a nuisance for him.
